What a coincidence, I have also had a low key titled the same. But yours leaves mine in dust, Rajasekar. Hope to see this get golden!

Rajasekar, I agree with Kathy, less is more in this case! The lighting really makes a statement. The profile lines formed by the light are very intriguing, I like the position of the hands & how it just touches the edge of the neck. Great work! Congratulations on your POTD. Sara:) #8870556
